Very frequently, when I have to present as a male, I get depressed. Over little things – stupid things – like being associated with masculine things or addressed as a guy. It seems so trivial, but that kind of thing just wrecks me.

To my understanding, a majority of transsexuals suffer the same issue should the situation come up. So I tried to reflect this scenario as well as I could, with a mopey and uncooperative Rain just ready for this day to end.

Thank goodness for a trying-but-failing Rudy. It’s got to be frustrating for him, but he’s trying really hard.

Rain, all characters and all other aspects of the story are copyright material belonging to me.

As for me this happens when I had job interviews and tried to act "normal" - you know, eye contact, body language and the whole crap. And when these people are talking.. WHY exactly can't they just say "sarcasm sarcasm" or "irony irony" like I do?!
But ah well. Awesome comic btw. I'd probably buy it if I only had money... But I spent all of it, 300€, on those comic books of my child hood. WHY DID THE LIBRARY SELL THEM, WHYYYY?! ;A;

I'm with Rain... Please let this week go by so she can be normal again. My nerves can't take it.

I am pretty sure I failed a job interview due to being in drab. It was a McDonald's that was in desperate need of workers, and I even had manager friends there, and the franchise owner was gay, and I was pretty sure I answered all of those interview questions satisfactorily, but... They didn't hire me, despite needing workers for months afterwards. I went dressed in boy clothes, because I didn't have anything formal in girl clothes, but I must have been awkward during the interview...

Interestingly, I've only lost two interviews since transition, and both were encouraging. I don't think I passed any interviews as male...

Yes, definitely. Being a Transgender woman of color, this bothers me all the time. Especially when I'm talking to the school bus driver and get misgendered (even though I have long hair and am often wearing feminine clothing) or when I have to sign some documents with my dead name because I'm still waiting for the government to take their time changing my documents.
